Why newspapers still need sub-editors

Jump to Comments

BernankeI didn’t manage to get this cutting into the blog until today, but this item from the June 17 edition of London financial free paper City A.M. is a stark warning about the perils of doing without a sub-editor.
I like City A.M. – for a freebie it’s a well-put-together paper for the financial/business world and it maintains an appealingly contrarian free market view, in the face of the new Keynsian orthodoxy.
But they really should add a sub-editor to the roster. Mistaking a big picture of US Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke for US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is a howler of epic proportions for a financial newspaper.
I’m available for shifts, by the way…
